I've been working on a custom bag for Tom. He needs something to haul around a lot of stuff and he's been looking at a few trunk bags but none of them seem to fit the bill. That's where I come in.
We sat down and had a little brainstorm session and came up with a trunk bag that will fit (fingers crossed) between his back rack and his seat, come on and off easily, and fit everything and more. Luckily he's a pretty tall guy so there's a lot of space between his saddle and his back rack. Enough space for foot tall bag!
I convinced him to let me try out a double flap top, one flap front, one back. And there'll be a handle grip (salvaged) and some d-rings for a shoulder strap.
I'm including some construction pics for your enjoyment. I've got a pocket pattern I'm pretty satisfied with and there's some details of those coming together...
